Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of verse 1.3.41:

आवयोर् मुक्ति-दातृत्वं यद् भवान् स्तौति हृष्टवत् ।
तच् चातिदारुणं तस्य भक्तानां श्रुति-दुःखदम् ॥ ४१ ॥

āvayor mukti-dātṛtvaṃ yad bhavān stauti hṛṣṭavat |
tac cātidāruṇaṃ tasya bhaktānāṃ śruti-duḥkhadam || 41 ||

O Śrī Nārada, you gladly address us with the praise of being happy perpetrators of mukti or liberation. The word mukti is also unbearable to us. It simply gives deep pain to the devotees’ ears.

Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda

(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)

The import of this verse is noteworthy.
